In times such as these, we need to return to our heritage and focus on Scripture not man made regulations of conduct that are all too vague and subject to interpritation.

Thanks for your work. Just read the Veith piece on American Lutheranism and "Evangelical Catholics" -- teffific. It's encouraging to know there's other Lutherans out there who care about our theological conservatism, liturgical worship, and adherence to the Sacraments.

I spend a fair amount of time reading the web sites to be found under keyword Orthodox Lutheranism or Confessional Lutheranism. There are some excellent Confessional web sites, yours included. Thanks much for your efforts. I pray that these efforts will make a very real difference in our synod.

I would like to thank all who have contributed to this brave work out of love for Christ and his Gospel. This sight has saved me from liberal Christianity and its lies and was a big part in my conversion from the ELCA to the LCMS. Because of God's work in places like this I am confident that the Church shall triumph!Thank you and God's blessings

The more I read of Luther and those who followed, the more encouraged I become, and confident in Him who loved me and gave Himself for me. I hope the perspectives contained in the Lutheran confessions will not long be contained in obscure websights, but rather challenge all the churches to look again at the biblical texts, and adjust accordingly. Cheers! Jim

Just found this site. Hope it is what it purport s to be- Confessional Lutheran . Some of us in liberal LCMS congregations are really thirsting for true guidance , and not getting it, from our "leadership." Perhaps this site can help fill in some of the gaps. Thanks.

Anybody out there feels cheated by God? Anyone who feels God took him for a ride? That God just used you and chucked you out like a piece of rag? Anyone out there who saw the light, forsook-all and followed Christ to preach His Word only to be dumped. Or am I the only one? I sure as hell would like to know!

The Pagemaster Responded:

You are not the only one. It is the cross we are called to bear for Christ, sometimes. Many faithful servants are savagely attacked and fired and all for merely being faithful. Only the unfaithful will not be so abused - and even some of them are.

God has not forsaken you, however. It is the world that has forsaken you. It is the world that has attacked you. Jesus was also attacked. "A disciple is never greater than his Master." God did not dump you -- man did. God still wants to encourage you to stand faithful in His Word, and proclaim His grace. To expect that because you serve God, you will have it swell is unrealistic, contrary to the explicit teachings of the Bible, and what is called "a theology of glory".

I would recommend a book by Eugene Veith called "Spirituality of the Cross". You can order it from Concordia Publishing House in St. Louis, MO. I believe you will find it helpful, and very refreshing.

May the Lord bless you, guide you, and open your eyes to His blessings, so that this present pain (and I do not doubt the seriousness of it) will only work to bring you closer to Him.

A great storm is brewing in LCMS, led by church led by those who would discard the confessional basis of our faith.Soon it will be time to place our backs against the door of Wittenburg church door and refuse to allow them to tear down our great Doctors theses. .

As a (hopefully) pre-seminary student, I fear for the future of Lutheranism in America. Liberal theology and the Church Growth Movement are making deep and devastating inroads into Orthodox Lutheranism. I thank the creators of this site for providing a place where people can discover the pure teachings of Evangelical Christianity.

Thank you for the efforts devoted to this site. I appreciated reading Pr. Preus' article "When is Enough Enough" as this topic is a frequent discussion within my immediate family, most of whom have left LCMS-affiliated churches due to the disconnect between confession and practice. I would appreciate any additional material regarding a related topic...the practical application of "confession through affiliation" in today's LCMS. May God bless your work.

Wonderful site. One note: The article on the blowup at St. Louis, excellent in almost all respects, says that "urteilen" is not as strong as "richten". That is not the distinction of the two words. "Richten" is what one does in reaching a verdict, the determination of facts. "Urteilen" is what one does in setting the sentence, the consequences of the determination.

Thanks, a very useful and intereting site. Still it would be furthermore useful to make confessional Lutheran materials available in other languages as well, since the confessional Lutheranism is not at all limited to English-speaking countries only.
